Jubilee Party Vice Chairman David Murathe has asked Kenyans to brace themselves for a Raila Odinga presidency in 2022.

Speaking during an interview with KTN on Saturday, Murathe likened Raila’s presidential bid to South Africa’s quest for freedom under the late Nelson Mandela.

He noted that it was time that Kenyans rewarded the former Prime Minister who put everything on the line for the country’s development.

“We think it’s time Kenyans rewarded the years of struggle of Raila Amollo Odinga. They owe it to him. It’s like Mandela, and 2022 will be a Mandela Moment. And we would also like to tell him (Raila) to be a transitional president who will then nurture the young generation to take over in 2027,” he said.

If it comes to pass, Raila would be a one-term president, paving the way for a new shift in Kenyan leadership from 2027.

Murathe explained that the Handshake-a brainchild of Raila and Uhuru- will shape the 2022 political landscape.

For instance, there is a proposition to have a Prime Minister from Central Kenya, a Deputy Prime Minister from the Coast and another deputy possibly from the Rift Valley.
